ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York's energy agency has released a "blueprint" for developing the Offshore Wind Master Plan described by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in his 2016 State of the State address, saying the plan will come out at the end of 2017.

The 24-page document released Thursday by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority says the state is examining a 16,740-square-mile area off the Atlantic coast for potential wind project sites.

The Long Island Power Authority postponed a vote on a 15-turbine offshore wind farm in July after officials said they wanted to wait for the state's master plan. The blueprint says projects like LIPA's can proceed while the master plan is being developed.

Democrat Cuomo's Clean Energy Standard requires half of the state's power to come from renewable sources by 2030.
